Winter Storm Headed To The Midwest

A winter storm is headed across the Midwest.

The storm is expected to sweep across the upper Midwest Monday and Tuesday. The system will land in the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday and Thursday.

According to USA Today, snowfall accumulations are expected to fall somewhere between six and 12 inches in North Dakota and Minnesota. Chicago could see upwards of six inches by Tuesday.

The winter storm headed towards the Midwest has resulted in warnings for sections of Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

Businessweek reports that 70 percent of the Chicago area will likely see half-a-foot of snow during the winter storm. The snowfall could prove problematic for those who are headed to work in the morning.

National Weather Service meteorologist Amy Seely said:

“It will start overnight tonight and mostly affect both rush hours, morning and evening. A lot of the city could see eight to 10 inches.”

Although experts understand where the system is headed this evening, the question remains which areas will get hit after the winter storm makes its way across the Midwest.

Washington and Baltimore could see a significant amount of snow should the storm decide to track towards the south. Experts believe Tuesday evening’s rain could change over to snow by Wednesday morning.
